Hello there, I’m back with another travelogue on Switzerland! Visiting the alps is a must when one is in Switzerland and we managed to visit 2 during our trip – Jungfraujoch and Zermatt. Before we visited the alps, we had a lot of basic yet essential questions like where to stay, where can we find supermarkets, what to do etc. So I thought it’d be good to compile a FAQ to answer all these questions! We will first start with the Jungfrau region, then I will go more in-depth of the things we did there! Let’s go!
1) Where is the Junfrau Region?
The Jungfrau region starts at Interlaken, which is also the biggest town in the region. From there, you can take trains to many other smaller towns and villages in the alps and in the valleys, each of them unique and beautiful in their own way. Interlaken can be easily reached by train – there are two train stations at Interlaken – Interlaken Ost and Interlaken West. The train stations are 5 minutes by train and 20 minutes by foot apart, and most trains will pass by these two stations. Interlaken West is closer to the city center, but Interlaken Ost is the base to all the mountain railways.
